Installation steps:
I am not a good judge of this, as I need to do a clean install of Windows. I've changed so much that it made it much harder than it's supposed to be

This eGPU has not only improved the gaming on my ThinkPad, but my productivity as well. With the ability to attach multiple monitors, the multiple applications I usually have open (usually 8-10) can be spread out across multiple work areas, allowing for less time spent looking for exactly what I need. This eGPU took a perfect business laptop and transformed it into (imo) the best productivity/gaming setup I could ask for. Not only that, but it it matches or outperforms my desktop rig, which has a Ryzen 5 1600x and RX580 8gb. When gigabyte comes out with newer mini-ITX cards (hopefully the 20- series cards or the vega cards) an upgrade is definitely going to happen. I had to upgrade the RAM because I regularly use almost 8gb. The pre-installed 8gb was not enough.
